The efforts to share and reuse knowledge generated on construction projects are undermined mainly by the loss of important insights and knowledge due to the time lapse in capturing the knowledge.

A methodology for the live capture and reuse of project knowledge is then presented and discussed. The methodology, which comprises a web-based knowledge base, an integrated work-flow system and a project knowledge manager as the administrator, allows project knowledge to be captured live from ongoing projects.

The case studies explored the various types of reusable project knowledge which are important to be captured from construction projects, the learning situations/events from which reusable project knowledge is created (Kamara et al., ) and can be captured, current approaches for the capture and reuse of project knowledge and the requirements Cited by: 5.

A strategy for live capture and reuse of project knowledge. Based on the findings from the case studies reported in CAPRIKON Report, a strategy for the ‘live’ capture and reuse of project knowledge was developed.

The strategy attempts to capture reusable project knowledge (RPK) generated from various knowledge/learning situations once Cited by: The body of knowledge summarizes the construction project management steps and implementation techniques into construction project management methods.

These methods will steer the thinking logic of construction project management personnel to be active and helpful and this will have a positive affect on the enforcement and execution of every step.1/5(1).

CPM is aimed at meeting a client's requirement in order to produce a functionally and financially viable project. Fig 4 Project Life Cycle of a Constructed Facility /3/.Keywords: Case Study, Knowledge Conversion, Project Change, Shared problem-solving.

INTRODUCTION OF THE PAPER The aim of this paper is to present the findings of the case study of a research study on managing construction project change in the knowledge age. The paper begins with presenting the background to the research study.Explicit Knowledge Sharing and IT.

IT is useful in most stages of the knowledge sharing process, and it is used for content management as well as data and text mining (looking for hidden knowledge, relationships, etc. within data and documents). Content management systems are used to update, distribute, tag, and otherwise manage content.

They may include a wide range of functions, including.
